Well, there are more than 3, but we’ll keep it PG.
Bikes. Beer. Burritos.
I love burritos. It is one of the best foods around. Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
When we lived in Escondido, our pre-ride ritual was a bean, cheese and potato burrito from Jilberto’s on Valley Parkway, with which we would put a dab of their amazing red salsa on before every bite. About an hour and a half after ingesting these 2lb bombs, we would be rolling up to the Nobel Canyon trail head, the effects of such a shock to the system wearing off, now fueling the oncoming 26 mile ride.
And after the ride, beer of course!
Tonight’s dinner is what I call Heaven’n'Hell burritos. The “hell” is the chipotle ridden iron pan refried beans, the “heaven” is the cooling effect of the extra sharp cheddar cheese. These are of the vegetarian variety, but the beauty of the burrito, is that you can pretty much put whatever in them. Steak, chicken, fish, beans, even pretend soy “meat”, it’s all good.
Good and good for you.
